Aaron Paul Gets Ready To Ride In New Need For Speed Stills
Aaron Paul is about to enter a very important stage of his career. For the last few years the two-time Emmy winner has had a steady job and has received endless critical praise for his part as Jesse Pinkman on the AMC series Breaking Bad, but in just a few weeks the show will be coming to an end with the series finale. The classic evolution for an actor on a hit television series is for them to move from television to film, and that's exactly what it seems the star is doing. While he also has the Nick Hornby adaptation A Long Way Down estimated to arrive some time next year, it's likely that the next time we'll see Paul will be on the big screen starring in the video game adaptation Need For Speed. And today we get a brand new look at the film with two new stills, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
In the image above you can see Paul's character, a street racer named Tobey Marshall, hanging out with the character played by Kid Cudi, while the shot below features one of the film's central antagonist, Dino (Dominic Cooper), sitting alongside Dakota Johnson (a.k.a. the female lead in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie):
Scripted by John and George Gatins and directed by Scott Waugh, the movie follows Tobey as he gets out of prison and seeks revenge against the person who framed him and got him locked up. In order to accomplish his mission he joins a cross country race, but encounters some serious players when his ex-partner puts a bounty on his head. In addition to all of the actors mentioned above, the film also stars Imogen Poots, Michael Keaton, Rami Malek, and Nick Chinlund.
Despite the fact that this film actually isn't due in theaters until next year, this actually isn't the first time that we've had a chance to get a look at the film. Some of you may remember that back in June during the E3 Conference in Los Angeles Dreamworks actually put together and released a featurette that took fans inside the making of the movie. As a refresher course you can rewatch the video below.
Look for Need For Speed in theaters when it hits on March 14, 2014, and get ready for the final episode of Breaking Bad, which will air on September 29th.
